The Bad Dream Reliquary Launches Kickstarter Campaign

Via Press Release:

A newly launched crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter, The Bad Dream Reliquary, has just gone live and is raising funds for the production of a quarterly graphic novel horror anthology. The Reliquary is written by Seattle author Brett Reistroffer and will feature art from up to ten different artists illustrating short stories of horror, suspense, dark fantasy, and the macabre. Also collected in the 100 plus pages of content in each volume will be articles by guest contributors, featured art, and short fiction.

The production of the first volume is well underway, with the cover and interior art of the first short story being handled by the book’s production designer, Zimbabwe-Canadian artist Darcray. We have recently initiated a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for the further production of the first installment, helping us pay for the remaining art, most of which will be coming from a varied cast of new and upcoming artists in the indie comic world.

Coming this August: The First Annual Geekie Awards

Via Press Release:
The official date, location, as well as discounted ticket links for the First Annual Geekie Awards, presented by The Avalon Hollywood on August 18th, 2013 was announced today at Nedopak Productions in Los Angeles.  The Geekie Awards celebrates the most talented independent creators, artists and filmmakers, showcasing their work to a worldwide audience of industry leaders and fans who may not otherwise discover it via a live broadcast event.  The Show aims at positioning geek culture in the spotlight as a collection of valid award-winning genres for storytelling and creation.  In the coming months until the Award Show, celebrities, and fans alike, will be answering the call: What #RUGeekie for?
On Sunday, August 18th, 2013, in the heart of Hollywood, California, The Geekies will be awarding the best in indie-created comic books, graphic novels, short films, web series, podcasts, trailers, music videos, toys, games, art, craft, crowd-funding, and websites via a live-streamed, action-packed award show.  With a vibe such as the MTV Movie Awards and Spike’s Scream Awards, The Geekie Awards will be a live ceremony  intermixed with humorous, well-crafted digital content.  The Show will go further to offer on-site interactive experiences for guests, created by several top-name product design and tech sponsors involved this year.  The Geekies will combine Hollywood pizzazz with the fun of a comic convention in a classy-yet-fun way.
The video announcement of the nominees that were announced this morning from The Geekie Awards Headquarters in Hollywood, CA: http://TheGeekieAwards.com.  The list of nominees will be published later today at the following link: http://thegeekieawards.com/2013-nominees.
Kristen Nedopak, Executive Producer, show concept creator, and über geek explains, “There are far too many talented creators out there who don’t have the means to get the exposure they need [in order] to promote their incredible work.  The Geekie Awards gives them exposure to an international audience, both through our panel of expert judges to our website to the show itself and all the press surrounding it.  We’re utilizing our pull in Hollywood and our own creative talents to produce an event so fun that millions of people attend and/or watch, so the best of our creators’ work will be known across the world once we’re done.  That’s what is so exciting to me.  It’s about talent, finding that talent, and letting it shine.  If just one creator books work as a result, I consider this first year a huge success.”
A select number of discounted tickets will be released to the general public starting today, June 10, at the following link: http://thegeekieawards.com/tickets.  There are various ticket packages available, including access to VIP seating, a private party before the Awards Show, exclusive gifts, autographed art, as well as other perks.
